Drug delivery platform innovator Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) this morning announced positive topline results following the completion of its first ingestible nicotine in vivo absorption study. The company is pursuing the use of its patented DehydraTECH™ technology as a new nicotine delivery method. The delivery method, in the form of an edible dose absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, could potentially serve as a nicotine replacement therapy or as an alternative product format for regular tobacco users. Among other highlights, DehydraTECH™ demonstrated major nicotine absorption performance improvements including 1,160% faster delivery of equivalent peak quantities of nicotine to the bloodstream than achieved with controls as well as a 148% gain in the quantity of peak nicotine delivery to the bloodstream compared to controls. “This data supports further investigation of the many possible benefits of our DehydraTECH™ technology for nicotine delivery with potential both as a nicotine replacement therapy as well as an alternative product format for regular tobacco users over today’s inhaled options,” Lexaria president John Docherty stated in the news release.
